Good books on Tahiti/Bora Bora???

My husband and I are leaving this weekend for a cruise and I would like to do some reading on the area and hotels while cruising...as Bora Bora will be our next trip to book. I already have the Frommer's South Pacific one, but are there any others out there?? Thanks

There are two books that I have and recommend:

- Tahiti & French Polynesia Guide, by Jan Prince

- Moon Handbooks Tahiti, by David Stanley

David Stanley also has a highly informative companion web site to his guides, you'll find it at www.southpacific.org.

Ia orana,

Jan Prince's book " tahiti and fench polynesia guide" is my most constant travel companion for each trip back to the islands.

Jan lives on Moorea, this gives her a great edge ovre the other books for first hand knowledge. You will also get the best information for the restaurants to visit for each islands.

Enjoy
